Saturn deal creates jobs in Dothan
DOTHAN (AP) — A Saturn contract will create about 150 jobs at Cummings Signs, up to 100 of them at the firm's production plant in Dothan.
The company has agreed to provide exterior remodeling and signage for 500 Saturn dealerships nationwide, Cummings Signs President and CEO Steve Kerr told a Dothan news conference Friday.
He said the contract will be worth about $150 million over the life of the deal, and create up to 150 new jobs throughout its Nashville headquarters as well as operating plants in Dothan and Riverside, Calif.
Officials from General Motors' Saturn Division brought brand new Saturns to display on company grounds for the announcement.
A prototype of the new Saturn signs has been erected near the company entrance on Napier Field Road.
"The signs are so dynamic, you can't help but see it," said Chuck Thomson, director of retail integration for Saturn.
Cummings Signs employs more than 200 in Dothan.
